Wings Of The Dragon

9 Nights / 10 Days

Wings Of The Dragon

per person

A delectable little-visit piece of Asia, Bhutan entices travellers with its history and culture, and an array of attractive scenery adorned by wonderful flora and fauna. It’s a dynamic mix of man and nature, where Buddhist philosophies endure with a sentiment of compassion for all living beings. Bhutan makes an excellent spot for bird watching. In any corner of Bhutan, you can see beautiful birds.

Bhutan is home to over 500 species of Himalayan birds and because Bhutan’s natural scenery is practically unruffled, the birds keep staying or keep returning. We’d be delighted to share with you the many sides of this very rewarding destination and all the sights it has to offer.

After lunch enjoy afternoon sightseeing around Paro, including a visit to the Ta Dzong Museum housing many religious relics, works of art and handicrafts offering a great orientation into Bhutan's historical, cultural, and religious past. Next, visit the Rinpong Dzong to see the painting of the great saint Milarepa, considered as the master of meditation by the Bhutanese and believed to have attained enlightenment in a lifetime. Dzongs are large monasteries and district administrative centres, which were once strategic forts. Overnight stay at Paro.

Day 3: THIMPHU - PUNAKHA
Drive over the Dochu-La pass (3,100 meters), which on a clear day offers an incredible view of Himalayan peaks before descending into balmy Punakha valley (about 3 hrs total driving time). The drive through the countryside affords a glimpse of everyday life in this most remote of Himalayan kingdoms. In the Dochu-La area there are vast Rhododendron forests that grow to tree size and bloom in late April/early May covering the mountains in a riot of glorious spring colour. Punakha was the ancient capital of Bhutan. On arrival, visit Punakha Dzong, the "Palace of Great Happiness" built in 1637 by the Shabdrung, the 'Unifier of Bhutan'. It is the winter headquarters of the Je Khenpo and hundreds of monks who move en masse from Thimphu to this warmer location. The three story main temple of the Punakha Dzong is a breathtaking example of traditional architecture with four intricately embossed entrance pillars crafted from cypress and decorated in gold and silver. It was here in 1907 that Bhutan's first king was crowned.
After lunch, enjoy a walk to Chimi Lhakhang, temple of Drukpa Kuenly. He inherited the Divine Madman title since he revolted against the orthodox Buddhism in his time. He taught the people that religion is an inner feeling and it's not necessary that one should be an ordained monk. He is also considered a symbol of fertility. Overnight at your hotel in Punakha. We will take an entire day to drive to Punakha because bird watching can be done this entire route.
The Birds that can be viewed are Golden Bush-Robin, Edwards Rosefinch, Hoary Barwing, Plain –backed Thrush and Red Crossbills.
